Duran Duran To Headline Latitude Festival 2024
Duran Duran have been announced as one of the headliners of next year’s Latitude Festival. The festival will return to Henham Park, Suffolk, from 25-28 July 2024. Tickets are available here and more line-up announcements have been promised soon.
The much-loved band recently released their 16th studio album, Danse Macabre, due for release on 27 October. Hear the title track below.
Danse Macabre is the soundtrack to the band’s ultimate Halloween party. Across 13 tracks the band unearth bright melodies from the darkness, threading together new songs, themed covers, and newly reimagined versions of their own ‘spooky’ classics. Danse Macabre features covers of Billie Eilish’s Bury A Friend, Talking Heads’ Psycho Killer (feat. Victoria De Angelis of Måneskin), The Rolling Stones’ Paint It Black, the Rick James-inspired Super Lonely Freak, Siouxsie and the Banshees’ Spellbound, Cerrone’s Supernature and The Specials’ Ghost Town, as well as original tracks.
John Taylor of the band said: “We are excited to be making Latitude our sole UK performance next summer. It’s a great festival, and it’s been a long time since Duran have been in that part of the country. In fact, it’s our first time ever in Suffolk. We are riding high on the reception our new Danse Macabre album has received, and looking forward to bringing music from that record, all the way back to our 1981 debut album. See you there!”
Melvin Benn, Latitude’s Festival Director, said , “Duran Duran’s fusion of artistry and innovation seamlessly resonates with Latitude’s commitment to curate a multifaceted cultural experience. Celebrated for their iconic style, ground-breaking music, and a consistent string of chart-topping hits, the band have unquestionably left their mark on both the music and fashion realms. With their ongoing evolution and the ability to transcend musical boundaries, the band’s mesmerising live performances make them an ideal fit for the Latitude festival.”
